that helmet is going to be expensive. I would wait a few years and let the price come down.

The MSRP shows to be around $1600, that's why it's probably going to be in the distant future.
I can however, remember that the first IBM PC cost around $3000 and look where the price of computers are now.

And look how many years that took!By the time that thing drops low enough for me to afford it, I'll have been pushing up daisys for quite a while! While gadgets are cool, a helmet is useless if it doesn't protect properly. Now if it turned into a full body airbag upon impact...... :)

But there will still be drivers texting and talking on their phones!

In a review of bicycle laws, they have decided to book cyclists who are using their phones with an on-the-spot fine. That may cut it down by 10%.
